Moore Rips Rare: OLD!


Posted September 17, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

EA Sports' Peter Moore is a candid man who is not afraid to tell the truth: A trait that's way too rare in the game industry. And speaking of "Rare," on The Guardian's gaming blog, Moore dropped a few choice words about Rare, the company behind Conker and Banjo Kazooie:

"We were trying all kinds of classic Rare stuff and unfortunately I think the industry had past Rare by – it's a strong statement but what they were good at, new consumers didn't care about anymore, and it was tough because they were trying very hard - Chris and Tim Stamper were still there – to try and recreate the glory years of Rare, which is the reason Microsoft paid a lot of money for them and I spent a lot of time getting on a train to Twycross to meet them. Great people. But their skillsets were from a different time and a different place and were not applicable in today's market.

Tell us how you really feel, Peter!

Do you agree? Is Rare's time past, or do you think Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts is going to make Moore eat his words when it comes out on the Xbox on November 11th?
